Christopher Cantwell: I Face Up To 60 Years In Jail For Defending Myself!

in Culture/Politics by

Teary-eyed white nationalist Christopher Cantwell is a national pariah, but soon may become a civil rights icon if liberals aren’t careful. Prosecutors in Virginia, desperate to make an example out of the lachrymose lout, have slapped him with a bevy of felony charges while denying him bond, despite turning himself in and going out of his way to comply with law enforcement.

The judge ruled yesterday that Cantwell was a threat to the public safety and a flight risk because of his hate speech, making it clear that the ruling was politically motivated. Additionally, Richard Wilson Preston Jr. of Baltimore made a court appearance by video as well. He was caught on tape waving and firing a gun, and bond determinations for him will be made at a later date.

Cantwell is far from a sympathetic figure for many reasons, but this abusive treatment by the state is already changing his public perception. Cantwell’s openly racist beliefs may turn off the public, but this persecution is already causing observers on the right to sympathize with his plight.

“This is unconstitutional. These are defendable [sic] charges, strong self defense case. Hate the guy, but that’s reality,” said Mike Cernovich, a prominent pro-Trump blogger who previously speculated that Cantwell was a fed, in a Tweet.

Cantwell is providing updates via phone so he can stay connected to his fans while he is in lockup. He appeared on “Real News with Jason Kessler” last night for his first release to the public since his incarceration. Cantwell claims he is facing 60 years in prison for merely defending himself against a mob of leftist terrorists and expressing his uncensored thoughts.

“You have to obey the f-cking law. You can’t engage in violence, and you can’t go after my accusers-not even to annoy them on social media. You’re not helping me. You’re not helping the cause. You’re not helping your race. You’re not helping your nation by doing any of that,” Cantwell said to his supporters, making it clear that escalating the situation will not help matters at this point.

Cantwell is working with Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Augustus Invictus on the best way to raise money for legal fees as he attempts to free himself. He went on to encourage his supporters to remain calm, be honest, and work to document the various deceptions of the leftists who are after him. The Twitter response was mixed, although the sympathy continues to grow for Cantwell.

“He’s a right wing political prisoner. If you’re not willing to stand up for Cantwell, you have no principles. You’re just a cuckservative,” Twitter user Big Baller Right said in response to the news.

“Chris Cantwell is a political prisoner of Weimerica!!! How many Antifa and BLM animals have been arrested despite overwhelming evidence?” Twitter user Trey Knickerbocker‏ asked following his denial of bond.

The far left would be wise to stop making individuals like Cantwell into martyrs, unless they want to pour even more gasoline onto the spirited blaze of the extreme right.

  • Give him the 60! #idiot

  • This what can happen to any non-cuck white male.

    Letter from a Charlottesville Jail…
    Compare Cantwell with Antifa.
    The battle is now between liberty and tyranny, not bigotry and diversity.
    Cantwell says don’t strike back. Antifa and their supporters say words are violence, and violence is peace.

  • I bet he’s going to be a big hit with the brothers in prison.

  • He gassed someone, he can argue self defense, but I doubt he will prevail on it. He probably is being way overcharged. It should probably be a simple misdemeanor. He should just cop a plea and do community service.

    • He gassed someone?

      • Josef Joseph

        6 gorillion people.

    • Did he not use a standard mace?

    • I thought it was tear gas.

    • Gene C Clark

      he should get some punishment, I agree…but this is totally insane

      • john dicarlo

        Why should he have been singled out and arrested. Whites Nationalists were there to have a rally and air their grievances, with permit in hand. The filthy police herded them into close proximity of these queers and anarchists, and suffered hurling piss, shit, and cans filled with concrete, and Cantwell should be punished. You’re demented!.

    • Jay Spillers no it was mace

    • Jimmy Rustler


  • AllMyWat

    Lol, this little bitch is still crying? Does he have no dignity? Actions have consequences, dumb shit.

  • It won’t be long until all whites are loaded up and sent off to gas chamber. wake up people.

  • Lol what a vagina.

    • I’d bet you’d be a vagina too if the law said you were going to prison for defending yourself. Or at least your butthole would be.

  • play stupid games, win stupid prizes!

  • Augustus Invictus?!? What year did this story take place?!?!

  • Awwwwwww, when are these Nazis going to get a fair shake?

  • This guys ideas are repulsive, however those who don’t understand that our constitution protects his hateful speech to protect your ability to contest the government that is in power. By shutting him up you giving the government the power to prevent you from protesting politicians who are doing things you don’t agree with. We give vial obviously guilty murders due process for the same reason -to protect you from being punished for a crime you did not commit.

    • He’s not in jail for what he said. He’s in jail for what he did.

      • john dicarlo

        No one would have been hurt in Charlottesville and the protest would have gone on, peacefully. But the Mayor of Charlottesville ordered his goon squad police to surround and herd White Nationalists into a pile of antifa excrement, knowing full well violence would erupt. But that was the plan.

        As soon as this part of the plan transpired, the dem gov of Va, close friend of bill and hillary, declares a state of emergency so the protest could not go on, then the jewsmedia including FOXjews and CNN spent all day bringing on nonwhites and jews, and cuck politicians, along with the news bimbos and excoriated and smeared White Nationalists as the cause of all the violence, without allowing any one of them to give their side of the events.

        This was preplanned and premeditated by the ethnic controllers and executed by their useful idiots. Authorities knew White Nationalists were coming. Legal permits for the protest were issued, but disregarded by the controlled local shabbos goy cucks and enforced by dupe police. Listen, next time BLM decide to blow away these traitorous cops, while having their totally unauthorized riots,have a beer on me.

    • Ian Flannagan why is he in jail and not the other violent thugs? Because the power elite don’t like what he says.

    • john dicarlo

      Guys like Cantwell are against vial, obviously guilty murderers, and I’m sure he would identify who they are to you. So why are his ideas repulsive. Aren’t the “repulsive” people those who keep secret who these criminals and destroyers of America are? You say you don’t know? Well, you don’t know because the repulsive “people” are those who control the media, the FED and the US gov. Educate yourself and learn the “vial” truth.

    • Ian Flannagan What, defending himself with pepper spray against his Antifa attackers? You’re favoring the violent commie-inspired anarchists who are trying to bring down America!

    • Ian Flannagan What he did was to return the pepper spray that he was attacked with himself by the Antifa anarchists. Fight fire with fire. Here he is trying to wash their pepper spray out of his own eyes. How else to make them stop? And he gave a speech prior to the rally to his group trying to quell any inclination of violence. He’s in jail now with no bond, on charges that could bring 60 years in prison, not for what he did but for his beliefs, for being a white nationalist, the same as every one of our Founding Fathers!

    • Clip from HBO’s Vice News, August 17, 2017.

  • Yes. What the first amendment is about. But elitist want this to be precedent because the believe in power politics and they believe they have the power. Mini fascism at work.

  • Don’t laugh, we don’t provide justice to pariahs.

    • john dicarlo

      Who’s “we”? If you’re talking about the US gov, you’d be correct.

  • These unsophisticated neocons actually wrote: “White nationalist Christopher Cantwell is a national pariah, but may soon become a civil rights icon…”

    >White nationalist
    >Civil rights icon

    Somebody tell these culture jockeys what “mutually exclusive” means before they hurt themselves.

    • So, whites aren’t allowed civil rights?

    • The key word here, Chris, is NATIONALIST. White NATIONALIST. There’s this super handy website called WIKIPEDIA that explains things, you should give it whirl sometime and see what you can find out about WHITE NATIONALISM. They might even have a page that explains what civil rights are too! Best wishes on your upcoming learning adventure.

    • Ian Flannagan Yes, I’ve actually quoted directly from that Wikipedia piece on White Nationalism in defense of it a couple times here on Facebook. I especially like this part, which is what I’ve been repeating: “white nationalists believe that miscegenation, multiculturalism, immigration of nonwhites and low birth rates among whites are threatening the white race, and some argue that it amounts to white genocide.” Exactly! Don’t conflate white nationalism with white supremacy. They are not the same!

    • Ian Flannagan BTW, every one of our Founding Fathers were white nationalists! Take Ben Franklin, for instance, who wrote this in his 1751 essay, “Observations Concerning the Increase of Mankind”:

      “[T]he Number of purely white People in the World is proportionably very small. All Africa is black or tawny. Asia chiefly tawny. America (exclusive of the new Comers) wholly so. And in Europe, the Spaniards, Italians, French, Russians and Swedes, are generally of what we call a swarthy Complexion; as are the Germans also, the Saxons only excepted, who with the English, make the principal Body of White People on the Face of the Earth. I could wish their Numbers were increased. And while we are, as I may call it, Scouring our Planet, by clearing America of Woods, and so making this Side of our Globe reflect a brighter Light to the Eyes of Inhabitants in Mars or Venus, why should we in the Sight of Superior Beings, darken its People? why increase the Sons of Africa, by Planting them in America, where we have so fair an Opportunity, by excluding all Blacks and Tawneys, of increasing the lovely White and Red? But perhaps I am partial to the Complexion of my Country, for such Kind of Partiality is natural to Mankind.”

      In other words, there are black and tawney nationalists in the world too. Why single out whites to say they’re not allowed to be proud of their race and preserving their white heritage? That’s the worst racism these days, against whites! #WhiteGenocide

    • Have no fear, Chris. All nationalism is equally stupid. Regardless of creed or color, it as asinine form collectivism that teaches its adherents to hate people they’ve never met and take pride in things they had no part in accomplishing.

    • The “Red” by the way, refers to white people like Prince Harry.

    • Ian Flannagan And you certainly have a right to that opinion, just as Mr. Cantwell has the right to his. Fortunately, yours is the popular opinion, so you’re not risking 60 years in prison.

    • He’s not in jail for having an unpopular opinion. He’s in jail for using chemical weapons to attack people that he disagreed with. Something white nationalists have done quite often throughout history.

    • Say, have you ever noticed that people who complain about “white genocide” just can’t ever seem to get laid? Clearly they are victims of those sneaky Jewish pinkos and their Caucasian cock blocking conspiracy.

      • Jimmy Rustler

        not an arguement

  • didnt this guy gloat about the fact that someone died?

    • john dicarlo

      I don’t know, but Cantwell had nothing to do with that. People die every day. She was one of the privileged communists the US gov condones. I’m saying, “SCREW THE FAT BITCH” right now. Don’t cwy.

    • I wouldn’t call it gloating. More like a warning. He said her death was justified and that “a lot more people are going to die before we’re done here.”

    • Jimmy Rustler

      is it illegal to gloat about someone dying ?

  • Murderers and rapists receive less legal punishment than Christopher Cantwell is facing in Virginia right now for a justified act of self-defense. If he wasn’t white, the left would be having a meltdown over his treatment. Hell, if he was an illegal immigrant, he’d be a free man right now.

    Really just goes to show you that the Alt-Right is right.

    The left hates white people — especially the ones who stand up for the interests of other white people. In-group preference and preference for genetic proximity is the most natural and innocuous thing in the world. It’s why we care more about our own families than the families of other people.

    It’s a natural and beautiful thing…

    ..unless you’re white, in which case you’re literally Hitler. As far as the left is concerned, white people aren’t allowed to take their own side or stand up against the state-enacted soft genocide of the white population because anything less than ethno-masochism from whites is Nazism.

    It’s fucking bullshit.

    The charges against Chris are frivolous and based on false accusations. He’s facing 60 years in prison for defending himself with fucking pepper spray. Meanwhile, communist terrorists who used riot grade cans of the stuff in Charlottesville walk free right now.

    Even the commies who blinded Baked Alaska with bleach are free right now.

    This whole thing only serves to demonstrate the left’s anti-white bias and groupthink. It’s absolutely disgusting.

    • john dicarlo

      Rapists and murderers are given less …. They’re not WHITE! The US government is antiwhite and will take your constitutional rights away, and think nothing of it. George cuck Bush said it was just a goddamn piece of paper, and yes it is as long as Whites will sit by and do what they’re told by this criminal US gov. They’ll be just like Trump. Sit by, and DO NOTHING!

  • I call bull!

  • john dicarlo

    His tears are for America, White America. A White homeland. The dishonor and outrage this country has become. To be charged for a crime that the government itself is guilty of instigating. The outrage and unfairness of it is revolting. As though he should have just laid down and let the communists bash his brains in. Oh, he “gassed” someone? Really (((jay)))? You people are at the bottom of it.

  • Haven’t his actions earned the camera time?

  • Sorry but he has made himself
    untouchable even if he is innocent. If he is truly innocent and he is truly a political prisoner I’m sure the ACLU will get involved.

  • Howard Roark

    I’m going to send Mr. Cantwell a copy of my favorite novel, Hold Back This Day because he needs to read something inspiring at this low point in his life.


    Whatever your thoughts about the guy, how is 60 years in prison for self defense “Justice”?
